Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome

In light of a recently completed, comprehensive study, conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Institute concludes that exposure to constant vibrations can cause vibration syndrome, a condition also known as vibration white finger and as Raynaud's phenomenon of occupational origin.


Vibration syndrome has adverse circulatory and neural effects in the fingers. The signs and symptoms include numbness, pain, and blanching (turning pale and ashen). Early stages of vibration syndrome are characterized by tingling or numbness in the fingers.


Other symptoms of vibration syndrome include blanching, pain, and flushing. The symptoms usually appear suddenly, and are precipitated by exposure to cold. With continuing exposure to vibrations, the signs and symptoms become more severe and the pathology may become irreversible.

Mussel Aches and Pains

Muscle aches and pains are common and can involve more than one muscle. Muscle pain also can involve ligaments, tendons, and fascia, the soft tissues that connect muscles, bones, and organs.


Muscle pain is most frequently related to tension, overuse, or muscle injury from exercise or physically-demanding  actions. In these situations, the pain tends to involve specific muscles and starts during or just after the activity.


One common cause of muscle aches and pain is fibromyalgia, a condition that includes tenderness in your muscles and surrounding soft tissue, sleep difficulties, fatigue, and headaches.


Numbness in a hand is usually caused by damage, irritation or compression of one of the nerves or a branch of one of the nerves in your arm and wrist.


Fatigue

FootThrottle reduces Fatigue

Fatigue is a term used to describe the general overall feeling of tiredness and/or a lack of energy. Other words that are sometimes used in place of fatigue include exhaustion, weariness, and lethargy.


Muscle stiffness is a condition in which muscles feel tight and contracted rather than the usual supple state of muscles at rest. 


Muscle stiffness is a feeling of tension and contraction in the muscles. In other words, your muscles feel like they are always flexed.  This stiffness may limit your normal range of motion. Muscles feels stiff after periods of inactivity, siting in a constant position with limited movement.
